Rosacea Treatment FAQs

Is laser treatment effective for rosacea?

Yes, laser treatment can be a valuable tool in managing certain rosacea symptoms, such as redness, visible blood vessels, and flushing. Laser therapy works by targeting the blood vessels in the skin, reducing redness and improving overall skin tone. 

While it cannot cure rosacea, laser treatment can help to minimise the appearance of symptoms and improve the quality of the skin. 

Results can vary from person to person, so it's important to consult with experienced professionals at the laser clinic to determine if laser treatment is the right choice for managing your rosacea symptoms and to discuss the expected outcomes of the treatment.

What is the best laser treatment for rosacea?

The best laser treatment for rosacea will depend on the specific symptoms and characteristics of your condition. 

At our Brisbane laser clinic, we offer a variety of laser treatments that can effectively target and improve rosacea symptoms. 

Some common laser treatments for rosacea include:

  • Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) therapy
  • Nd:YAG laser therapy
  • Pico Laser

The most suitable laser treatment for your rosacea will be determined during a consultation with our experienced professionals, who will assess your skin condition and recommend a personalised treatment plan to effectively manage your rosacea symptoms.

How long does laser treatment for rosacea last?

The duration of results from laser treatment for rosacea can vary depending on the individual and the specific type of laser therapy used. Typically, results from laser treatment for rosacea can last for several months to a few years, but this can vary based on factors such as the severity of the condition, individual skin characteristics, and lifestyle factors.

 In general, many individuals experience long-lasting improvement in their rosacea symptoms following laser therapy. Whereas some may require periodic maintenance treatments to sustain the benefits of laser therapy.

How much does rosacea laser treatment cost?

The cost of laser treatment for rosacea depends on:

  •  Type of laser treatment recommended 
  • The number of sessions required 
  • The size of the treatment area 

To get an accurate cost estimate for your specific treatment plan, we recommend scheduling a consultation with our experienced professionals. During the consultation, we will assess your skin condition, discuss your goals, and provide you with a personalised treatment plan that includes details on pricing and the number of sessions needed to effectively manage your rosacea symptoms.

What will my face look like after laser treatment for rosacea?

Following laser treatment for rosacea, it's common to experience some temporary side effects, such as redness, mild swelling, or a sensation similar to a sunburn. These effects typically subside within a few days to a week, depending on the type of laser treatment used and individual skin sensitivity.

Our experienced team at the Brisbane laser clinic will ensure you are well-informed about what to expect post-treatment and will be available to address any concerns or questions you may have throughout your recovery process.

Does redness come back after laser?

While laser treatment for conditions like rosacea can effectively reduce redness, it's possible for redness to reappear over time, especially if the underlying causes of the redness are not addressed. 

Factors such as sun exposure, lifestyle habits, skincare routines, and the natural progression of the skin condition can all contribute to the recurrence of redness. While laser therapy can effectively reduce redness and improve skin tone, it may not provide a permanent solution for rosacea.

It's essential to follow a comprehensive skincare routine and lifestyle modifications recommended by our professionals at the Brisbane laser clinic to help prolong the results of laser treatment and minimise the recurrence of redness.
